KG VERDICT
This is a quality apron. Not only does it look and feel great in its brown suede but is eminently practical too. Pop a hand tool or gardening bits and bobs (string, seed packets, scissors, secateurs and so on) into any of the three pockets and you have everything you need for a particular task at hand. The strap is designed to fit all waist sizes and clips easily and crisply. What’s not to love?

KG VERDICT
With excellent stitching, this is a very well-made hat. It has a generous brim – just what you need in sunny weather – and fits securely to the head, though there is also an adjustable tie for making sure it doesn’t fly off if it is windy. Ventilation is provided by a strip of sage gauze-like material around the rim of the crown, which will keep the head from getting too hot. If you’re looking for a stylish, practical and comfortable hat for warmer weather, the Ultimate Garden Hat will not disappoint.
